Peel entice Glasgow Harbour tenants with ‘experience’ shopping pledge
August 15 2018
Peel Lifestyle Outlets have begun the hunt for tenants to populate a £100m mixed-use development at Glasgow Harbour with the appointment of Savills and Johnstone Property.
The statement of intent follows a recent planning submission for the waterfront scheme which will include 100 shops, 20 restaurants and cafes, a cinema, events space and promenade, complete with a pedestrian link to the Transport Museum.
Savills’ Head of National Retail, Stuart Moncur said: “As shopping habits continue to change and new trends evolve, the popularity of lifestyle outlets which not only offer discounted prices, but an all-encompassing experience, will continue to thrive.”
Designs drawn up by architects ADF illustrate a ‘kit of parts’ solution to allow various elements to be mixed and matched to create a varied streetscene of bays and pitched gables clad in brick, timber and metal.
This project doesn't nothing to reinforce or enhance the quality of the city…in any way.
No amount of token (and intensely mediocre) architectural make up- louvred screens, gable ends, timber cladding or cute little plastic people can polish a big out of town, out dated, retail park turd.
More of a concern is the effect it will have on the Byres Road, Dumbarton Road and Finnieston Areas.
Surely though this is what happens when you declare war on cars without introducing a viable alternative at the same time. City centres will need to reinvent themselves.
